ABOUT ELECTROMECHANICAL EQUIPMENT ASSEMBLER CAREERS
Video transcript

Today's complex and increasingly smaller electronic products are put together by electrical and electronic assemblers. Working on a wide range of products, like computers and airplanes, an assembler puts together parts of finished products. The work is often repetitive and generally involves the use of pliers, screwdrivers, soldering irons, power drills and wrenches.

Assemblers who work with wiring and other colored materials may be required to take a color blindness test, since being able to differentiate colors is important. You should also be mechanically inclined, with good hand-eye coordination and be able to do routine work at a steady, rapid pace.

There are no special educational requirements for these jobs, so most electrical and electronic assemblers get their training either on-the-job, or through some type of vocational education. If you have patience, work well with others in close quarters and take pride in turning out quality work, this may be a satisfying position for you.
